'World cup' is a series of events, each event also called a cup.
(See Mike's link above.)
'World cup' is also known (mainly in the USA) as a typical misnomer for the 'World Championship' which is what I suspect you are asking about.
The steps are the same though, type 'f3k world championship' into google

I kind of understand about this world cup event but does it ever culminate in one place and are a certain number of contestants given a prize or trophy for the being the best and if so where and when?

Are you asking about the series of FAI contests that makeup a points championship known as the World Cup or the World Championship? If you are asking about the F3K World Cup (a series of contests that anyone with a FAI license can enter) you can read up about the F3K World Cup rules in the soaring rulebook:

If you are asking about the World Championship each nation's National Aero Club can submit teams of 3 pilots to compete in a World Championship contest that is held every odd year.

I may be getting close to an answer, it seems so elusive
not interested in reading rules
trying to find out when and where are the world championships where the three contestants from each country or region gather and compete...does such an event exist?

I feel like your describing of your questions leaves a bit to be desired.

Not region... Country. Each nation can enter up to 3 competitors (per age division of which there are 2 one for under 18 as of Jan 1 of this year and one for everyone else). The 2019 F3K World's website is here:

http://www.f3kwch2019.com

It will be held in Hungary from July 14 through July 20.
